Singing a self-penned song written for the Opening Ceremony of CHOGM by the QUEEN - Guy Sebastian shows his true Aussie class again!
In attendance at the opening ceremony held in Perth on 28 October 2011, were Queen Elizabeth II, Prime Minister Julia Gillard, the Secretary-General of the Commonwealth and heads of government from all 53 Commonwealth nations.
Her Kind of Guy
The Queen appears to be a fan of Guy Sebastian and the singer/songwriter is a fan of CHOGM.
The former Australian Idol winner stole the show at yesterday's opening ceremony. The Herald Sun has learned that Sebastian wrote the song It Starts With Us for the biggest-ever gathering of world leaders in Australia.
"United we stand: we've given our all; be as one; we'll rise to the call," he sang.
Sebastian received enthusiastic applause from the Queen, who had otherwise appeared unemotional through the 90-minute ceremony of speeches, dance and other cultural performances.
Guy Sebastian was pushed to the ground, handcuffed and hauled off to the LAPD cop shop for stealing his own car. It was a bizarre misunderstanding and Sebastian explains this to Queen of Australian daytime television Kerri-Anne Kennerley.
Guy performs on the TODAY show on Australia Day at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane. Richard Wilkins interviews Guy about his performance in front of Barry Gibb at the G'Day USA Black Tie Gala Ball causing Barry to cry.
Barry Gibb, was honoured for Excellence in Music and presented an award by Aussie singer and actress, Olivia Newton-John.
Guy Sebastian performs for Oprah when she hosts a lavish cocktail party at the Sydney Opera House for her 300 US guests flown to Australia by pilot/actor John Travolta her friend.
So impressed was Oprah with Guy that she personally invited him to perform again at an exclusive top-secret wrap party for Oprah’s staff at The Argyle in The Rocks in Sydney, Australia. Oprah was grooving and busting moves with her team and took to the stage afterwards to declare that while Sebastian is big in Australia, pretty soon he was going to be huge in America, too.
BTW today Guy Sebastian has just gone #1 in the Australian ARIA Charts with Who's That Girl - wonderful Christmas Present for him - Oprah sure can pick them!
In February 2010, Guy Sebastian will perform songs from his forthcoming album 'Like It Like That', set for release on 23rd October 2009. The 'Like It Like That' tour will hit theatres in major Australian cities for one night only performances.
With the smash hit single "Like it Like That" dominating the charts at the moment - this is a great opportunity to get in early and get those up close seats to watch this incredible artist in action and in his element performing LIVE!
